Owner description: Geko Dive first opened in June 1997. It is the longest operating dive centre in Padang Bai. Geko Dive has been a PADI Resort since 1998, and is now a PADI 5 Star Resort and TecRec facility. We are fortunate to have one of Bali's best dive staff. Together, the Geko Dive Team can guide and teach in Balinese, English, French, German, Spanish, Indonesian and Japanese. All of our dive guides are excellent divers, with years of working experience on Bali's dive sites. At the same time, SCUBA remains a passion first and foremost. Diving with Geko Dive has always been fun and serene. To make sure that it stays this way, we are not planning to get any bigger than we already are. Dive factories and diving in large herds are not things that the Geko Dive Team enjoys. Diving should be a personal experience! We therefore keep dive groups small (4 max and often less), with similarly experienced divers together. We believe all our guests deserve the ultimate diving adventure with utmost enjoyment and safety.

Did three dives with Geko on a day trip from Ubud. The dive master, Darta, was excellent, he helped us on a tricky ascent in a strong current and made it much easier for me. Made me feel very comfortable underwater and looked after me above water too. Friendly guys and good rental gear, as well as a good dive... More

My husband and I visited Geko Dive during our honeymoon in Bali. It was BRILLIANT. I have never dived before and it's never been on my 'to do' list so i was a little nervous to say the least, but couldn't pass up the experience in such a beautiful place! On top of this I had to go it alone... More

Not only were the arrangements well organised and coordinated, the dive sites they took me to were spectacular and I got to see lots of different sea creatures and beautiful coral.
